Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

My gas pedal sticks. When I turn on my car to back out of a parking spot the pedal will not move unless I push down hard on it. To avoid hitting cars backing out or parking lots you have to use force on the pedal to move the car and it jerks forward fast with no control other than to hold your foot over the brake at the same time so you do not accelerate into a vehicle.

Driving down my residential street, slowed down slightly to turn into drive then slowly accelerated into and gas pedal sticks---had to slam on brakes to stop from hitting side of garage. This is the third incident I have had in which I am in the middle of driving and the gas pedal has stuck!

Pacifica

  • 40,000 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Chrysler Pacifica. The contact stated that the accelerator pedal was constantly sticking. The failure only occurs when the vehicle is at a complete stop and the accelerator pedal is depressed. The contact must apply maximum pressure on the pedal in order for the vehicle to move. As a result, the vehicle takes off very quickly. The dealer stated that there was carbon build up on the inside of the throttle and suggested that it be cleaned. The current mileage was 41,500 and failure mileage was 40,000.
